Seven did take a lot of screen time, but Season 4 also saw the rise of the EMH, who I can't stand.

While I loved all the seasons, Jeri Ryan can act circles around Jen Lien.

Kes annoyed me so was glad to see the back of that character,
The 7 of 9 character was supremely far better, Voyager was better overall with 7 of 9 than with Kes, even if she had such a prominent role.

I thought Voyager took a turn for the worse when it became the Seven of Nine show. Jeri Ryan seemed to be a good actress, but the Trek shows from TNG worked best as ensemble shows. When Voyager become primarily focused on Seven, I felt it lost something, failing from the same problem as Happy Days did when it became the Fonzie show. (Is that me showing my age? :) )

It's "Fonzie", and yes. :tomato:

Umm... the first option is misleading... very few characters if any actually developed from season to season. For example... aside from the hair... I can't tell the difference between season 1 janeway and season 7 janeway. Can you?

Yes, I can.

And no, it's not misleading.
